It's been over 20 years ago, and we still laugh about that.


My favorite KFC marquee sign was one I saw several years ago:

Drive-thru
Buffet
$4.99

My favorite will always be the one from House of 1000 Corpses.

Do dentists have to change their names as part of their training? Around here we have a Dr. Payne as well.

There's a store a couple towns away called The Liquor Well.

When I was around age nine or so, I was seen by a Navy doctor named Butcher a few times. When I grew up, my gynecologist's name was Dr. Biller.

I once had a psychiatrist named Priest, too.

I always get a chuckle and some NFBSK thoughts when I pass by the Liquor Quick Mart.

I don't have pics, but there's a restaurant in Lake City, FL called "Fu King Chinese Food." That has to be intentional.

There's a plastic surgery clinic here in Gainesville called "Poser Plastic Surgery."

My dentist's name is Dr. Doctor.

During my visit I can't help but to have the refrain from a song in my head the whole time:

Doctor, doctor, give me the news. I've got a bad case of lovin' you. No pill's gonna cure my ill. I've got a bad case of lovin' you.

He's a good dentist, btw.


Morning

I know a little girl whose last name is Anguish. I wonder if she'll grow up to be psychiatrist?

Came into this one kinda' late, but I once had a dentist named Pullen and an optomotrist name Blinder at the same time.

Been a while since I've posted and I'm rusty and can't include a link, but a friend of mine took a picture of the sign at a pharmacy just a few days ago in a local town. The pharmacists names are Michelle Salti-Jaber and Troy Nutson. If I could post the picture, it would be funner.

There's a road a few miles south of Farmington, Maine, where my BIL's parents live. It has numerous twists and turns, very steep drop-offs on both sides, and no guard rails. You obviously travel this road at your own risk. Its name is quite appropriate. This photo was taken by my sister.
